Subject: Spanish subtitles?
Subject: Great mix of protestors, background info and interviews
My only "complaint" is that the sound level is not even the whole video through so I had to adjust my audio volume twice.
To the previous reviewer: since you have not seen the film, why do you review it? Giving it a 1 because you're on modem is just stupid and will lower the averge rating for no good reason. Please edit your review!
